Message from the City Marshal

We believe the members of the Groves Police Department are its most valuable asset and the essential ingredient to effectively and efficiently complete the police mission in the community we serve.

We believe in the equitable, fair and impartial application of the laws and ordinances without regard to race, color, creed, sex. We believe in treating all individuals with tolerance, compassion, and the dignity we would expect if found in a similar situation.

We believe in the preservation of basic human rights and the maintenance of individual integrity under the rule and spirit of law, which dictates that ends to not always justify means and that punishment is not the function of the police. We are rather problem solvers.

We believe in providing quality, empathetic, responsive, and professional service to the citizens and visitors of our community. Additionally, we believe the Citizens of Groves have endowed us with a public trust. We will honor that trust by holding ourselves to the highest standards of professional police conduct, wholly subscribing to the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics. 

We believe that our responsibility to provide service, leadership, guidance and protection to our citizens. We firmly recognize our role as public servants.
